Fresh allegations of misconduct against Jeremy Piven

Share

Anastasia Taneie, a woman who worked as an extra on Entourage, has made fresh allegations of unwanted sexual advances by Emmy victor Jeremy Piven.

Anastasia Taneie, now 30, told BuzzFeed that Piven, back in April 2009, cornered her in a darkened hallway where he allegedly grabbed her breasts and genitals.

Taneie told the site, "I was scared at the time nobody was going to believe me". She claimed that she didn't want to "make a scene", but instead wanted to "go home". "I just wanted to go home", she said.

"It was the most awful thing I've ever experienced", she added. It was at this point that Piven asked Taneie to be removed from set for trying to hit on him.

According to Taneie, the alleged incident occurred when they were shooting on location and Piven - who starred as super-agent Ari Gold - pulled her to one side.

"Let me be absolutely clear, this simply did not happen", he told BuzzFeed in a statement. "I would never force myself on a woman".

Taneie said she never officially complained to anyone with the show. "I can not speak as to why a person would create a story like this". On Nov. 20, Piven's Instagram page linked to a story in TheBlast.com that said he had passed lie-detector tests in which he denied accusations by three previous women.

HBO stated at the time of the case breaking open that they didn't receive any complaints about Jeremy's behavior while on the set of the HBO-created series. HBO takes sexual harassment very seriously and we make it a priority to ensure that everyone experiences a safe and comfortable work environment.

Ariane Bellamar was the first woman to come forward with allegations against Piven and was closely followed by Longmire star Cassidy Freeman and Tiffany Bacon Scourby, an advertising executive.

He is also threatening to pursue legal action and has demanded his accusers take a polygraph test, like he did on 13 November in a bid to prove his innocence.

Piven now stars on CBS's Wisdom of the Crowd.

Piven's representatives did not immediately respond to Variety's request for comment.
